Morpheus8 in New Jersey

Certain factors like genetics, lifestyle choices, and age can cause our skin to develop displeasing imperfections. One of the most noticeable signs of aging is skin laxity, which can occur due to decreased elastin and collagen production. Skin laxity can affect many areas of the body, creating an aged appearance. Morpheus8 by InMode is a revolutionary, non-surgical, fractional skin tightening treatment that tightens loose skin, improves tone and texture, and delivers healthy glowing skin from the inside, out.

What is Morpheus8?

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon Dr. Beverly Friedlander

Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that combines the skin tightening of radiofrequency with the anti-aging benefits of microneedling. The RF (radiofrequency) energy is delivered deep into the tissue with the help of a silicone-coated microneedling tip, targeting the tissue up to 5mm deep where it will have the greatest effect, without the worry of damaging the skin. The fractionated RF stimulates a renewal of collagen and elastin, the structural proteins of your skin, resulting in an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles and a more radiant and youthful appearance. This treatment can also be used on any areas of the body that need subdermal renewal and allows for tissue contraction and fat remodeling.

What is the Benefit of Combining Radiofrequency with Microneedling?

Beverly Friedlander, MD

As time passes, our skin gradually loses its firmness and resilience, leading to increased sagging and the emergence of fine lines and wrinkles. While microneedling addresses surface-level transformations, Morpheus8 goes a step further by targeting the deeper layers of the skin concurrently. By utilizing RF energy, controlled heat is delivered to stimulate collagen and elastin production within the deeper layers. This process effectively counteracts aging, essentially fortifying and rejuvenating your collagen structure. The outcome is not only visibly improved skin tone, texture, and appearance but also a more youthful complexion with enhanced skin contours and radiance.

Is there a Morpheus8 treatment using Radiofrequency alone?

Forma uses the same radiofrequency (RF) that is used in Morpheus8 as an isolated treatment. The RF energy gently heats the tissue to the optimal temperature for collagen production in a controlled fashion.

This stimulates the formation of new collagen, improving skin elasticity over time. It is suitable for individuals seeking a non-invasive improvement to skin tone and texture and can be combined with other treatments, such as HydraFacial, dermal fillers, and neurotoxins such as Botox and Daxxify, as well as Lumecca IPL for an overall improvement. Forma is safe for all skin types and is ideal for small areas on the face and body. Forma is non-painful; the treatment has been compared to a hot stone massage. There is no downtime, although your skin may appear flushed initially. It is recommended as weekly treatments for six to eight weeks.

Where Can Morpheus8 Be Used?


Morpheus8 can be used anywhere on the body where you have loose or crepey skin. Treatable areas include the face, neck, décolleté, arms, abdomen, knees, and any areas with stretch marks or sagging. Morpheus8 can be combined with other treatments such as PRP or Lumecca IPL for even greater benefits.

Enhancing its capabilities, Morpheus8 now boasts the innovative 3D Smart Frame Functionality, significantly increasing its effectiveness. With this feature, it employs bipolar radio frequency energy with meticulous precision, forming a sequence of radiating patterns. The process starts at the core, forming an inner circle of microneedles, before extending outward to middle and outer rings. The result is three-dimensional tissue block heating, resulting in a treatment pattern that is not only precise but very uniform in application.

Morpheus8 for Face

Morpheus8’s specialized treatment for the face focuses on remodeling and contouring through a process called subdermal adipose remodeling. By utilizing a combination of microneedles and RF energy, Morpheus8 penetrates deep into the skin’s layers, precisely targeting the subdermal adipose tissue. This not only encourages collagen production and skin tightening but also remodels the fatty tissue beneath the skin. The result is a more sculpted, youthful, and rejuvenated appearance, with enhanced facial contours and improved skin texture.

In addition to the standard Morpheus8 treatment, we offer specialized tips for specific areas:

Morpheus8 Prime Tip: For smaller, delicate, and hard-to-reach areas, we offer the Morpheus8 Prime Tip, featuring a smaller 12-pin tip. This tip is specifically designed for subdermal and dermal remodeling and is ideal for areas around the eyes and lips.

Morpheus8 Resurfacing Tip: The Morpheus8 Resurfacing Tip features 24 thin gold-coated microneedles that penetrate up to 0.75mm, targeting the epidermal (top layer of the skin) at a fixed depth. This specialized tip stimulates facial rejuvenation on the superficial layer of the skin.

Morpheus8 for Body

Morpheus8’s benefits extend beyond the face, offering an impressive array of advantages for body treatments. This includes skin tightening, fat liquefaction, cellulite treatment, reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars, improving “rippled” skin often associated with cellulite, and promoting overall even skin texture. The combination of microneedling and RF technology in Morpheus8 enables the treatment to address these various concerns simultaneously, providing comprehensive body rejuvenation.

What sets Morpheus8 apart from other microneedling treatments?

What truly distinguishes Morpheus8 from other microneedling treatments is its incorporation of radiofrequency energy. While traditional microneedling stimulates collagen production by creating controlled micro-injuries, the addition of RF energy takes the treatment to a whole new level. The RF energy amplifies the effects of microneedling by generating heat in the deeper layers of the skin. This dual-action approach not only enhances collagen production but also triggers the contraction of existing collagen fibers, leading to tighter, firmer skin.

The combination of microneedling and RF in Morpheus8 creates a synergistic effect, resulting in more dramatic and longer-lasting results compared to standalone microneedling treatments. Additionally, the controlled delivery of RF energy ensures that the treatment is precise, customizable, and safe for various skin types and concerns.

What Can I Expect During My Morpheus8 Treatment?

True Beauty Med Spa

Morpheus8 is a non-surgical treatment that is performed in our office. A topical anesthetic will be applied about one hour before the procedure. During your New Jersey Morpheus8 treatment at True Beauty Med Spa, the device will deliver RF energy as the microneedling penetrates the skin’s surface to a depth of two to four millimeters. You may feel a warm sensation as the RF heats the deeper tissue in a controlled fashion to improve collagen production and skin tone and texture.

How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Will I Need?

After an in-depth skin analysis is performed, a personalized course of treatment will be reviewed. We want to ensure that your concerns are addressed and that you can feel confident about your skin again. When it comes to Morpheus8 New Jersey patients will find that optimal results usually require three treatments, but can vary depending on your age and the degree of damage. You can expect to see improvement after the first treatment, similar to that seen with microneedling alone. The skin tightening effects of the RF are additive and become more noticeable after the second and third treatments. Following your initial treatment, it is recommended that you consider maintenance procedures once or twice a year.

What Will My Morpheus8 Recovery Be Like?

Beverly Friedlander, MD

Because Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment, there is little downtime required. That means you can return to routine activities. After treatment with Morpheus8 New Jersey patients will apply a balm that will be supplied. You will need to liberally reapply this balm over the next 24 to 48 hours as the tiny openings created by the microneedling close down. Moisturizers and sunscreen can be applied after two to three days. Maintaining a proper skincare routine and limiting sun exposure will help prolong your results.

What Risks and Side Effects Are Involved with Morpheus8?

Any risks or side effects involved with Morpheus8 treatment are minimal. There will be some redness after the procedure. Oftentimes, patients report “micro scabs”. This, along with any mild swelling or bruising, resolves after a few days. Makeup is not needed but can be applied if desired.

What Results Can I Expect with Morpheus8?

Some patients see an immediate improvement in their skin quality and texture. Results with Morpheus8 are typically seen after two to three weeks but can continue to improve up to three months as new collagen is deposited into the tissue. You can expect to see beautiful, youthful, healthy skin that you will be proud to show off.

Maintaining Morpheus8 Results

To ensure the longevity of your Morpheus8 results, it’s important to follow a post-treatment care regimen and make certain lifestyle adjustments. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to maintain your Morpheus8 results:

Skincare Routine: Follow a personalized skincare routine recommended by your healthcare provider. Minimally, this includes gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreens to protect your skin from UV damage and environmental factors. Most patients also benefit from the use of an anti-aging protocol such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids, skin brighteners, and retinols.

Sun Protection: Shield your skin from harmful UV rays by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, even on cloudy days. Avoid excessive sun exposure, and consider wearing protective clothing and hats when outdoors.

Hydration: Drink an adequate amount of water daily to keep your skin hydrated and support its natural healing processes.

Avoid Smoking and Alcohol: Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can negatively impact skin health and hinder the body’s ability to heal. Consider reducing or quitting these habits to maintain optimal results.

Healthy Diet: Consume a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Nutrient-rich foods can contribute to skin health and overall well-being.

Regular Exercise: Engage in regular physical activity to promote circulation and overall well-being. However, avoid intense workouts immediately after treatment and follow your provider’s recommendations.

Skincare Products: Consult your provider before introducing new skincare products or treatments to your routine. Some ingredients or procedures might interfere with your Morpheus8 results.

Follow Provider Recommendations: Attend any recommended follow-up appointments and adhere to any maintenance treatments or touch-up sessions as advised by your healthcare provider.

Lifestyle Changes: Maintain a healthy lifestyle and manage stress through relaxation techniques, as stress can impact skin health and the aging process.

Patience: Results from Morpheus8 may continue to improve over time as collagen production increases. Be patient and give your skin time to reveal its full potential.

Maintenance Expectations:

The duration of Morpheus8 results can vary depending on individual factors such as age, skin type, and the treatment area. Typically, Morpheus8 results can last several months to a year or more. Maintenance treatments may be recommended periodically to prolong and enhance the effects. Your provider will offer personalized guidance on the ideal maintenance schedule based on your unique needs and goals.

How much does Morpheus8 Cost?

The cost of Morpheus8 treatments can vary widely depending on several factors, including the treatment area, the number of sessions required, the geographic location of the clinic, and the expertise of the healthcare provider.

To get an accurate estimate of the cost of NJ Morpheus8 treatments, it’s best to consult with a qualified healthcare provider who can assess your individual needs and provide you with a personalized treatment plan and pricing information.
